About the Book

Aṅụrị’s stepmother, Ophelia, is the ultimate ‘mumfluencer’. Throughout Aṅụrị’s childhood, she catalogued every minute, milestone and carefully curated family outing on social media, cultivating a devoted - and sizeable - following. Now Aṅụrị is twenty-five years old and her life looks pretty perfect from the outside. Ophelia’s fans could be forgiven for wondering why Aṅụrị spends much of her time insulting men online for money, battling the call of alcohol, running away from her PhD application, and reminding herself that Ophelia doesn’t choose her outfits any more.

Aṅụrị might have cut ties with Ophelia, but when she sees her little sister being pushed into the same spotlight, she knows it’s time to act. With so much at stake however, her stepmother won’t give up without a fight. 

Get ready to question your ‘harmless’ social media habit in this stunning second novel from one of the most exciting new voices in fiction.
